Create keepsakes and memories for years to come by making salt dough ornaments. It's a fun way to have your family make unique ornaments that you can put on your tree year after year.

The possibilities for salt dough ornaments are endless. You can use cookie cutters or trace your child's hand to make hand print ornaments. You can find the recipe for salt dough ornaments here, as well as, directions how to make family faces ornaments!

We made salt dough hand/foot prints for fathers day this year, but we havent made them for Christmas. Normally we dont give handmade ornaments, but when the kids get bigger that will definitely be something fun to do
